Should be under "Merry Pranksters", not the Dead - likely there is no one from the Dead personnel involved in this thing....really, your liking or not liking this stuff depends on if you like "The Merry Pranksters"!

Of definite historical interest, but nothing more. The utter self-containment of these acid tests make them almost unapproachable on a basic level. Read Wolfe's "Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test".

Self- indulgent, sloppy mess. Are The Dead actually on this recording?

Acid Test 10 of 19.

A fantastic interview with Ken Kesey. Ken Babbs blaring the harmonica. More defined than previous Tests. Not too over the top for the night... It's just right.

Subject: This is the Merry Pranksters, not Grateful Dead
While the Dead did play the tests, it really doesn't sound like they are playing any of the background instruments here. Vocals by Kesey, Babbs & others. On the last track, a Prankster says "Lets let the Dead sing" as Garcia & Co. plug in, and Jerry comes on mic, complaining that his voice is "completely shot." Note that the Prankster refers to the band as "the Dead," this is just 7 weeks after their first public gig billed with that moniker. Apparently, the name stuck, and fast.

Worth forgetting. This would be the last album I would direct anybody to when referencing the Grateful Dead.
